We’re very excited to announce Roxy Rezvany will be joining as our fourth and final speaker at Nicer Tuesdays August!
Earlier this month Roxy released Little Pyongyang, a tender and stylised documentary offering a revealing panorama of the experience of a refugee through the eyes of Joong-wha Choi, a former soldier in the DPRK who now lives with his wife and children in New Malden, London.
Working on the film since 2014 when Roxy became aware of the North Korean diaspora living in New Malden, the short not only reveals a compelling perspective but is an exploration of the nature of documentary storytelling itself. Working with production designer Kat Hawker and set designer Louis Gibson, as well as graphic designers Maya Badouk Epstein and Erica Dorn, the short documentary unearths preconceptions of North Korea, “a sort of ‘leave behind everything you think you know,’" says the director.
Roxy joins August’s line up of recently announced Pentagram partner Sascha Lobe, fine art leaning photographer Luke Evans and renowned illustrator Charlotte Mei.
